Met troopie Yunners for some retail therapy before we decided we were both hungry and walked around restaurants before deciding to head towards Esplanade to escape the crow. We were walking around and decided to go with this Japanese place. I recognised the name to be where I brought troopie rah the last time. I decided to give it a second chance, and also because we were starving.  ( what are the chances of walking into a same named restaurant with the same ‘group of friends’ just at different timings?”?? Amazing)

So we ordered to share:

Zaru Soba

Tuna and Sword fish (Meikajiki) Sashimi

Spider (Soft Shell Crab) roll

Miso Pork in stir fried vegetables

Saba (Makeral)  Fish

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return.

The setting of this branch is very different from the other! But we didn’t sit inside to have a look .. we were just directed outside instead.

I am not sure if it is because we were so hungry that we thought everything was good, (although the cutting of the Mekajiki (Swordfish) appeared a little weird at first, but still tasted good! Just wished it was slightly thicker) .  Mackerel was nicely done, not too over cooked. The soba was not too soft, still tangy. The rolls, hmm.. I thought they were just average – nothing to say that they were super fantastic, nor you also can’t find fault with it as well.  The pork and vegetables in Miso.. I don’t think I would order it again, because after a while it just got a bit too much for me personally. But for all the miso lovers, I am sure you will disagree with me. Service was good and fast.

 

well, we quite enjoyed the night and had loads to talk about. The ambience was very chillax and it was just nice to chill there and talk.
#30s before 30 🙂

Enjoyable evening overall 🙂
